common sense. >> an emotional and personal appeal from senate majority leader harry reid on universal background checks. here with me now, connecticut's two senators who say if their colleagues won't take a stand on gun control, it will be nothing short of insulting and outrageous to the memory of the victims of newtown. joining me are senators richard blumenthal and chris murphy. i think we should read out the names of the senators who signed up for the filibuster. mitch mcconnell, rand paul, cruz, rubio, inhofe, moran, burr, johnson, enzi, crapo and senator roberts. shame on all of you. i find it completely outrageous that over something as important as this, these characters would sign up to basically refuse to allow a vote. what is your reaction as to this letter? >> my reaction is the american people are going to be very aghast and deeply angry if a handful, small group of united states senators block a vote. the president has said that the newtown victims as well as the victims of aurora and of virginia tech and columbine deserve a vote. and so do the american people.

safety legislation is moving forfwhard the senate. are democrats confident harry reid can get quick votes and victories on both? >> not at all. harry reid is from a red state that very much favors loose restrictions on firearms that very much favors the assault weapon's ban, it is going to be a tough bridging of the gap for him either way. >> michael: jim on guns almost every recent opinion poll has found wide-spread support for background checks. you wrote about this. is the nra now losing relevancy with being so out of touch with what the american people want? >> not necessarily with their own base. i think they are still pandering to their constituents fairly effectively. which is why i think there are still a lot of nervous legislators. i'm not so sure particularly on background checks maybe something on straw purchases, but when senator coburn the gynecologist personed politician seems to have drawn his line in the sand on the government keeping a quote registry or keeping anything for more than a nano second, that raises a lot of questions on whether the other folks can come u

both voted no. one of them comes with a gigantic asterisk. we have mitch mcconnell, harry reid. and we have mitch mcconnell. he's the republican leader from kentucky. the giant asterisk i want to get out of the sway harry reid was for back ground checks. he had to change his vote because of procedural issues that will allow him technically potentially to bring up background checks, bring up the bill later if they are ever to get 06 votes for it. i think harry reid is worth mentioning in this discussion because harry reid has evolved quickly on tisch uf guns. reid comes from, i'm going to say it right, nevada. nevada, you know, traditionally gun state. he cultivated support from the nra in 2010. they stayed neutral as soured him on the nra a bit. he expected more help than he got. other issue with harry reid, he is the leader of the democrats in the senate. this is a priority for the party. on top of that, harry reid is in his 70s and up for re-election in 2016. there is an open question of will he try to stay for six more years or is he at the point he is like i'm going finish out m

the important thing to remember here is that the senate is controlled by democrats now. harry reid is sort of running the show. and, i know that he has been working his caucus very hard to try to get, and president obama has been working democrats very hard but it sounds like they're still three or four votes shy of that 60. jon: it is my understanding harry reid who has been pretty coy on his intentions about this bill and came out with statements how he intends to vote. >> yeah, this whole bill is a very thorny problem for harry reid. in pass elections he run cam panes that very much focused on his very pro-gun stance. out in nevada it is a very important issue there. now that this is coming up, and as you pointed out in the your invery we're talking about the biggest changes to gun control legislation in decades or at least 15 years now. so how harry reid comes down on this and how much he really wants to see this bill, see the light of day is still up in the air a little bit. jon: as i understand it, there are only four republican senators who have, who have signified they will vo

red states that are up for election in 2014 know that. and harry reid knows that. it's interesting despite all of the drama, and the excitement of president obama's state of the union address where he said, you know, where he sort of demagogued and said these people need a vote, they deserve a vote and everybody stood up and applauded that was in effect him heckling harry reid. harry reid is the guy who can bring this stuff up for a vote and he doesn't want to because this is a bad vote for democrat snooze we've talked a couple of times on this program with the author dan balm, he's a reporter, a liberal democrat now living in colorado, he's the author of this become, "gun guys." he told us the other day that he thinks that colorado may have hurt the democrat's political chances bypassing some fairly strict gun laws. is there any connection to the fact that president obama is head thr-g to make a personal appearance, maybe a political appearance? >> well, i don't know what ba baum's argument in particular is. one of the things we are seeing is i think a lot of democrats are happy t
